Paged Media Properties


Normally, a web page appears as a continuous page. CSS2 introduces the concept of paged media, which is designed to split a document into one or more discrete pages for display on paper, transparencies, computer screens, and so on. Page size, margins, page breaks, widows, and orphans can all be set with the following properties and values. Unfortunately, these properties aren't supported by any current browsers.
